Quote# 95487

The reason I don't believe in evolution is that from the moment anything living comes to life it has to find food. Nothing in this world has time for food to evolve. We can't eat rocks. We have to eat something organic wether dead or alive. When God made this world he made it in perfect balance so everything could eat and survive.

And the first life ate minerals, similar to the iron eating microbes found on the remains of the Titanic.

Actually, there are mineral-eating bacteria right now, but as long as you stay away from volcanic vents, your brain should be safe from them.

If a shark is to eat, then a seal is to die. If a seal is to live, then a shark is to starve. I guess there is balance in such a creation, but I wouldn't call the creator benevolent for doing that. It's like a bad horror movie where crazy evil scientists play god.

And now you know why, in fiction, only crazy evil people play god. It's called casting the expert.

When are we going to get a tag system so I can nominate this for the "you fail biology forever" tag?

the moment anything living comes to life

I keep reading this realizing that this idiot thinks that evolution means that rocks turn into living beings.

Because you are either too lazy or too stupid to do even the most insignificant research into the subject.

Human parasites are just part of God's perfect world, I guess.

The reson I don't believe in creation is that creationists continuously post ignorant nonsense like this.

IOW lichen.

tell that to the people dying of starvation.

And it violates the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, and there's not enough moon dust, and where did morality come from and blah, blah,blah all the other Sunday-school shit that was debunked a century ago.

Put down the pokedex and go open a biology book. You don't know whay evolution is.

You would have thought he had at least watched one single documentary about bacteria in his lifetime...

All plants have to do to find food is sing "Good Morning, Sunshine".

Salt (and a list of minerals as long as my arm that are essential to our survival) used to be alive in your world did they?

Here's a tip for you: 'organic' in these circumstances does not mean 'was once alive'. It means carbon based molecules. Large amounts of inert organic compounds were precursors to life. The food was already there.

We have to eat something organic wether dead or alive.

Nylonase disagrees with you!

In 1975 a team of Japanese scientists discovered a strain of Flavobacterium, living in ponds containing waste water from a nylon factory, that was capable of digesting certain byproducts of nylon 6 manufacture, such as the linear dimer of 6-aminohexanoate. These substances are not known to have existed before the invention of nylon in 1935. Further study revealed that the three enzymes the bacteria were using to digest the byproducts were significantly different from any other enzymes produced by other Flavobacterium strains (or, for that matter, any other bacteria), and not effective on any material other than the manmade nylon byproducts.

plants eat sunlight you dumb fuck.

@ Meeeh :

Just be aware that the linear dimer of 6-aminohexanoate IS an organic molecule.

"If a shark is to eat, then a seal is to die. If a seal is to live, then a shark is to starve. I guess there is balance in such a creation, but I wouldn't call the creator benevolent for doing that." I agree completely. And that is one of the major reasons that I can no longer believe in a kind, benevolent god.

Yes. It's called 'other life forms'.

That is a stupid reason, Tommie. By the way, evolution doesn't require belief. It requires understanding.

Your question is so daft it amazes us all. The fact is that asking why there are "still" monkeys is ludicrous because when the line split between what became monkeys and what became human there were neither monkeys or humans. You might as well ask since Monkeys exist why are there still humans. It is the same question.

Does it hurt to be that dumb?

Plants make their own food by photosynthesis. Bacteria at the bottom of the ocean gain energy from chemicals that spew up from volcanic trenches.

Hold on, I just need to give my plants a plate of macaroni cheese!

Oreos existed in abundance right from the get-go.

Fucking photosynthesis, how does that work?
